From Pacific Dunes in Oregon to Cape Kidnappers in New Zealand or Barnbougle Dunes in Tasmania, Tom Doak can be defined as a minimalist that respects the site he is given, optimizing its qualities without ever distorting its true character. An expert in golf design, he is also the most renowned writer when it comes to evaluating golf courses.
